To say last week was a good one for Imperial High School volleyball player Lindsay Lugo would be an understatement.
In Imperial Valley league matches against Calexico and Central Union, the 14-year-old sophomore totaled 36 service points, 29 assists and four kills in leading Imperial to two victories.
Lugo is one of the main reasons for the Tigers' early success.
Against Calexico Imperial won in five games, 13-15, 15-2, 15-8, 14-16 and 17-15. The Tigers followed that with a 3-0 sweep of Central, 15-6, 15-8 and 15-8, as Imperial improved to 3-1 in the IVL.
"Against Calexico it shouldn't have been that close. It really shouldn't have gone five games," said Lugo, the team's setter. "We started that match with a lot of momentum, then kind of lost it. But we were able to pull everything together and get the win.
"Then against Central, I think we had a lot of the momentum from the Calexico win carry over," Lugo said. "We all just played together and worked together. Both were good wins for us."
